Macros

The SPL above uses the following Macros:

Note that gcp_detect_accounts_with_high_risk_roles_by_project_filter is a empty macro by default. It allows the user to filter out any results (false positives) without editing the SPL.

Required field

  • _time
  • data.protoPayload.request.policy.bindings{}.role
  • data.resource.type data.protoPayload.authenticationInfo.principalEmail
  • data.protoPayload.authorizationInfo{}.permission
  • data.protoPayload.authorizationInfo{}.resource
  • data.protoPayload.response.bindings{}.role
  • data.protoPayload.response.bindings{}.members{}

How To Implement

You must install splunk GCP add-on. This search works with gcp:pubsub:message logs

Known False Positives

Accounts with high risk roles should be reduced to the minimum number needed, however specific tasks and setups may be simply expected behavior within organization
